Activist Church Turns Sights On Cabela’s

posted on December 31, 2015

New York’s Trinity Wall Street church—which, as a Wal-Mart shareholder, has campaigned to limit what types of guns and ammo the retail giant sells—is now shifting its attention to Cabela’s. The church wants fellow shareholders to be permitted to vote on a policy ending the sale of “firearms and magazines capable of discharging more than eight rounds without reloading.” 

Trinity Wall Street is estimated to own $2 billion in assets and saw a scandal when its former rector spent over $12 million on a parsonage located in a luxury Soho townhouse. The way in which the church is throwing around its considerable wealth and influence is very much according to the Michael Bloomberg playbook; what is particularly shameful is that it enjoys tax-exempt status as a faith community while doing so.
